** In Season 3, it's easy to empathize with Gilly's fear for her son who is slated for a HumanSacrifice.
** In "The House of Black and White", Cersei and Jaime receive an implicit threat to their daughter Myrcella, who is far from home and surrounded by people who want revenge on their family. Cersei also brings up the fact their eldest child was murdered right in front of them and their youngest child is betrothed to a woman they can't trust.
** In "Kill the Boy", Maester Aemon laments that the only remaining scion of House Targaryen besides himself is in huge trouble across the world and he's powerless to help.
** Part of Jon's appeal to the wildlings in "Hardhome" is that their children will not live to have children of their own if they don't come south. Later in the same episode, the chieftain Karsi is shown sending her children ahead to the boats and is visibly horrified by the sight of child wights.
** Despite her AbusiveParent relationship with Shireen and her adamant faith, being forced to watch Shireen burn at the stake forces Selyse into a full-on VillainousBreakdown as she attempts to stop it.
** Discussed in "Mother's Mercy" when Sam says he'd rather face an army of White Walkers than watch Gilly and Little Sam die knowing he failed to protect them.
** Myrcella collapses from poison in her father's arms in "Mother's Mercy".

Cue mother looking for child, and taking a looong time to find that child. ([[InfantImmortality The child survives]], but still...)rum

* ''Series/{{Shadowhunters}}'':
** After seeing an eight year old Clary almost get eaten by a monster while playing in the park, it's not hard to see why Jocelyn would want to keep her away from magic.
** Clary overhearing Luke saying that he doesn't actually care about her or her mother. Then coming home to find the house an utter wreck and her mother gone.
** Both Lightwood siblings have pretty heavy conflicts. For Alec, it's having to choose between being out and proud and living for himself and staying closeted and retaining his parents' hard-earned approval. For Isabelle, it's forcing herself into a repressive persona to take the brunt of her parents' attention off Alec so he has a chance at happiness.
